Default Anyone with a functional roof scoop

Getting ready to install a functional roof scoop. Wanted to know if anyone has this done, and if so are you experiencing any issues with it, ie leaks, irratating wind noise etc. Any help would be great.

I'm afraid to try myself so I am taking my car to a custom Hot Rod shop. I had a scoop on my 02 WRX, but didn't make it functional. They do awesome work. Making a 600 mile trip for it.

Put mine on 2 years ago. Had a professional shop do it as well, they were more than happy to take the job...(they do Hot Rods and lots of custom stuff, they also did the hood scoop and made that functional as well) A little bit of wind noise at cruising speed on a windy day (aka 120km/h), otherwise don't hear anything. No leaks, no drips.

I live in Florida, so I was wondering if driving with it open in the rain allows water to come inside.

Rain does gets in, but not too much though. It really depends on the speed you drive and the direction of the wind. Once, I actually went through a whole freaking car wash with my roof vents up!!! And amazingly, only the handbrake portion areas was slightly wet, the rest of the interior is still dry. Maybe the roof scoop helps too!

Jin, I really like what you did with your rear door windows, is that just a tint outline around the window or something special, do you have that on the front doors as well.

Yup, just tints. But you got to put the Prodrive stickers in first ...

Jin, awesome awesome car. Question. Is that headliner something you installed yourself? I have an 04 WRX and my headliner is lame-looking. Yours looks sweet. Is it stock? Custom?

Nah, mine is customed. If you look at my rearview mirror, you be able to see my b and c pillars are also customed in the exact cf material too.

I got my vent and scoop from Paul Eklund at Primitive Enterprises. Very nice and friendly, cut me a good deal too.

Yeah, I got the scoop from him, but didn't like the vents he had, or the price.

Yo Jin, when are you going to put the Bullet Cam mount on the roof. That's pretty much the only thing you are missing compared to the WRC Car
